many people will just post a new thread and let Diana or others either answer or refer them to another link

QED, eh? ;)

The "recent posts" think was pretty much an old-system hack AFAIK? I don't personally know if it can come back. You're right the couple hr old thing is just because of everyone saying the same things in a couple hr. The same happened with the GD flap even under the old system. It was just a darned lot of posts, like now.

Here's one backdoor to show huge swaths of posts for the tough times (a url sytle not really linked anywhere except in a forum post from Jon one time):
http://www.archive.org/iathreads/forums-searchresults.php?searchForum=yes&search=etree

Here's another through the front door: go to archive.org front page, look at the forum scroll, click "more" on the forum's title bar, get
http://www.archive.org/iathreads/posts-display-new.php?limit=50
and manually increment as needed. Lucky for us windbags, other forums don't have as many posts in that scroll.

As for the other points, you can also search the forum too: Of the top of my head, for 3), try: browse
For 4), try: zip

You will see some recent ones from the last couple days or hours covering those issues.
